Co-directed by Andrew Erwin and Jon Erwin, I Can Only Imagine follows a true story based on a song by possibly the most popular faith-based song ever played on Christian radio – I Can Only Imagine by MercyMe.
The story follows Bart Millard, who the lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe. His relationship with his troubled father played to the core by Dennis Quaid. See the movie clip below of Quaid playing a very emotionally torqued father. The message in the movie, which is totally Christian, nobody is ever too far from God’s love — or too far from an eternal home in Heaven.
The movie also stars Cloris Leachman, Trace Adkins, Michael Finley, Priscilla Shire, and Madeline Carroll.
